Details of available vacancies are listed below.

Precentor of Lincoln

The Acting Bishop of Lincoln, in consultation with the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral, is seeking to appoint a Precentor of Lincoln.

Lincoln Cathedral aspires to be a ‘workshop of creativity and a working space for the Gospel of Jesus Christ’. The Cathedral, as a centre of worship and mission, also serves the diverse communities that make up Greater Lincolnshire.

Working collegially with the chapter and wider diocesan community the new Precentor will play a key role in the preservation of excellence in worship as mission both within the cathedral choral tradition and in the development of additional less traditional forms of liturgy to speak to wider contexts alongside forms of online worship within an historic cathedral setting.
